The only scheduled vice-presidential debate of the campaign between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris was objectively calmer and more civilized than the previous presidential debate.

In total Pence interrupted Harris ten times, while Harris interrupted Pence five times. Pence spoke for 38 minutes, three minutes longer than Harris.

During the discussion, neither candidate answered a question if they had discussed stepping in for Trump or Biden if one of them would die in office.

In addition, Harris did not answer the question if she and Biden are planning on expanding the number of supreme court seats while Pence refused to state that he would accept the results of the election.

During the debate viewers also discussed a fly sitting on Pence's head for two minutes and his left eye that had a distinctly pinky-red tone.
